Another question on the paper for everyone involved as an author - it would make things easier to list all authors under a single 'organisation' - i.e. the IGDA SIG, giving the email contact as this list address.
Can people confirm with me they are happy with that. I can technically put everyone down in their seperate institutions, but it's going to look v. messy...

Page 1 - Not sure about "the specific threats to games are outlined," -
shouldn't that be something like "the specific threats to preserving
games are outlined," - since this isn't otherwise mentioned in that
Possibly will want to put "digital" before one of these mentions of
"games" too, to be sure this is clear in the abstract. Board games, card
games and so forth are a bit out of the remit (fascinating though they
are), and it could be misinterpreted. Might want to put digital in the
keywords search too, but I doubt this is important.
Page 2 - Not sure about the footnote, since it is the only one in the
text - is it worth sourcing something to be a proper reference?
Page 5 - the bullet points (at least in OpenOffice) are very much pushed
to the right of the columns - making things a bit spread-y - might be
worth putting them all the way to the left (decreasing the indent).
Page 7 - small thing, Playstation -> PlayStation, Sony is pretty fussy
on this ;) - it also doesn't mention the Xbox store, but two examples is
enough for sure.
Looks well edited otherwise - there are a few small things (too many
commas possibly in some sentences) which are more up to how you want it
to be read, rather then how correct it is.
As for who did it, author list, apart from yourself there is the ones
mentioned on this page:
I don't know if you need editors, but the main authors are listed there.
If you need me to re-read it, give me a shout.
